ic! Berlin and Zero G sell very well because of the technology behind the craftsmanship which makes the frame light and durable.

Kate Spade suns do extremely well as a second pair because of the price point when a progressive is ordered. Cindy Harmon, Sonoma Eyeworks, Santa Rosa, CA
We had a trunk show for Lindberg in April, and it was so successful that we are bringing in another one of their lines. Margot Lanham, Ulla Eyewear, Madison, WI

The opticians sold five Orgreen in one day. Kind of blew my mind considering it’s one of the more expensive products we carry.

We display them in the center of the dispensary and patients usually just grab them from the shelf and fall in love without our assistance. Dr. Tanya Gill, Oakland Vision Center, Oakland, CA
Our hottest seller for three months has been Ray-Ban followed closely by Vogue. We decided to infuse a lot of color to both lines and they have been a hit! Tweeners love the vibrant colors in the geek-chic styles! Dr. Monika Marczak, Eye Candy Optical Center, McMurray, PA
